Domaine Faiveley Nuits St. Georges Aux Chaignots 2011
|Appellation||Cote de Nuits|
Wine AdvocateTasted blind at the Burgundy 2011 horizontal tasting in Beaune. The 2011 Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Aux Chaignots from Faiveley has a well-defined, quite lively and vigorous nose that is brimming with red cherries, fresh strawberry and pomegranate aromas, the mineralité simmering just below the surface. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, lithe tannins that lend it a fleshy texture. This feels natural and refined, lingering long in the mouth and concluding with a harmonious, svelte finish. This is very sophisticated and beautifully crafted.
Wine EnthusiastFrom vines just to the north of Nuits Saint-Georges, this firm and structured wine features ripe fruits, red berries and bitter cherry flavors. Both dark in texture and perfumed, it's powerful and does need some aging. Drink from 2017.
